Bucky Fuller's dome home open for tours

Posted: Updated:

CARBONDALE -- If you want a tour of a unique southern Illinois house, the weekend before the eclipse might be your chance.

The Buckminster Fuller dome home is a unique piece of architecture designed by the famous architect, who taught at SIU for over 10 years.

With tens of thousands of people expected to descend on southern Illinois during the eclipse weekend, board members supporting the dome home say this is a great time to teach more people about the man who thought outside the box.

"More interest in Bucky Fuller himself, and what an idea man he was, and how important he was in the structure of our world," said Larry Weatherford, R.Buckminster Fuller Dome Home NFP board member.

Tours of the house will take place the weekend of the eclipse on August 19th and 20th, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
